Classes and Groups for Fall 2022

August 31, 2022 Antoinette Richardson

The Ministry of Adult Spiritual Growth

For the Fall of 2022, the Ministry of Adult Spiritual Growth is pleased to announce the following classes.

We have tried to balance our offerings of classes in a variety of areas of Spiritual Growth:

We hope these classes will help people connect with each other, while building our community of faith.

About Sunday Morning Class times:

Please notice that the starting time has changed to 9:15 AM. This allows us to accommodate the many people who attend classes and have to be available for something related to our worship service at 10:30.

If you intend to participate in a Sunday morning class, please be ready to begin class promptly at 9:15 AM.

About Books for the Classes

All of the books used in the following classes, except for the Follow Me classes, are widely available through local public libraries and major online booksellers. Many are available in audio format.

Inexpensive, used copies can be purchased through used booksellers like AbeBooks.com, Biblio.com, or ThriftBooks.com.

Books for the Follow Me classes will be purchased by the Ministry of Adult Spiritual Growth. If you can, please donate $8 per book to Forest Hill Church, specifying that it is for books for a class. But if this expense would be difficult for you, please consider the book to be our gift to you.

Update from the Co-Pastors

December 14, 2021 Antoinette Richardson

Dear Friends, 

As of Sunday, December 12, we will no longer require registrations for in-person worship attendance.  Livestream worship on our YouTube channel will continue! 

Please read the following expectations: 
-Masks are required. 
-Please, if you are able, get your vaccine and booster.  This is the best way to protect yourself and others. 
-DO NOT ATTEND IN-PERSON WORSHIP if you are ill or even feeling a bit under the weather.  
-SPREAD OUT!  Every other pew will be roped off. Of course, family units can sit together! 
-There will be an overflow viewing area in South Hall.  We have a large TV screen, and the Livestream service will be broadcast. 

You will still be asked to sign in when you enter the building, and ushers will hand out bulletins and communion elements when needed.  If you can volunteer to be an usher, please get in touch with Deb Erwin and/or Twanda Patterson. You may also sign up here: https://fhc.breezechms.com/form/ab8a54.

We are planning an In-Person Christmas Eve service at 5:00 p.m. on December 24. All are welcome. This will be a service of Lessons and Carols and all the choirs will be participating.  

We are watching carefully the news of both the Delta and Omicron variants and plans may change overnight.  We will keep you informed.  

Faithfully yours,  

Pastors Veronica and John

Women of FHC

November 10, 2021 Antoinette Richardson

Come and join us each Saturday morning to walk through Acacia Metropark Reservation off Cedar Road near Richmond. We meet at 8:00 am and are usually done by 9:00 to leave plenty of time for all the OTHER things you need to do on Saturdays. All are welcome! We are all about building community, and getting a little exercise is an added benefit. Join us any time you can-the more, the merrier. Look here every Wednesday to see where we will be walking for the week. Hope to see you there!

Contact Julie Lustic or the church office if you plan to join us, so we don’t leave without you.
